V.J. School Assurances
V.K. Master Schedules

All school master schedules meet or exceed the state required minimum (1,062) instructional hours within our 174 student school days. All schedules have been approved by their corresponding SBDM Council. I recommend the Nelson County Board of Education approve school master schedules for New Haven School and Old Kentucky Home Middle for the 2018-2019 school year.

V.L. Shortened School Day
VI. Dedicated To Our Community
VI.A. Pre-Audit AFR
Amy Owens

The pre-audit AFR must be submitted annually to the Kentucky Department of Education.  It is a compilation of revenues and expenses as well as beginning and ending balances for Nelson County School District for Fiscal Year 2018.  The pre-audit AFR was presented and discussed at the August Working Session.

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  Approve the Pre-Audit AFR as presented. passed with a motion by Mrs. Diane Berry and a second by Mr. Jeff Dickerson.

VI.B. LGE/KU Rate Case Intervention
Amy Owens

The Louisville Gas and Electric and Kentucky Utilities Companies have announced their intent to submit to the Public Service Commission for authority to increase electric and gas rates.   Proposed increases will include dissolution of the pilot rate New Haven School currently benefits from as well as an increase in the regular rate.  These increases will result in an increase in electric costs for New Haven School.  Although the specific amount is unknown, the pilot rate appears to have saved us approximately eight thousand dollars in the past year.  KSBA will be coordinating with school districts and is asking each district to cover a proportion share of legal fees.  The proportionate share for Nelson County School District will likely range between $251 and $377.

Actions Taken

Motion Passed:  The Nelson County Board of Education authorize the superintendent to provide funding support to the Kentucky School Boards Association to represent the interests of the Board before the PSC. passed with a motion by Mrs. Diane Breeding and a second by Mrs. Diane Berry.
